The end of April I put a couple little quilts in a local quilt show. I won a blue ribbon on the faux trapunto one.
The other small quilt I entered was a trapunto star. I taught a trapunto class last fall.
Not everyone likes feathers so I designed a star and then with my janome sewed around
the star and embellished it a bit. I put a grid on the sides of the star and free motioned and
used my janome's embroidery. My 6500 just has some basic embroidery stitches. It took
a long time to finish this little quilt. I used colored pencil plus archival ink to draw on the
I am practicing with some different threads on my longarm. I drew some crazy feathers
with chalk first.
